Changing s-prepare in M3D Crane Quad Fusion



  • Hello all,
    i want to change the userinterface of my M3D Quad Fusion Printer (using an Duet 2 Maestro) because i dont like it right now.
    I already changed the main menu in editor without a problem, well i cant use the Ü and ß which i would like to use but this is not the most important. i would like to change the s-prepare file from:

    ; Created by PrintM3D
    ; for the Crane Series
    ; This menu is displayed when the printer is idle; for the menu active while
    ; printing, see "s_tune"
    ;

    button R15 C5 F0 T"Home All" A"G28"
    button R27 C5 F0 T"Load/Unload Filament »" A"menu x_fload" L"x_fload"
    button R39 C5 F0 T"Move Axis »" A"menu x_move" L"x_move"

    button R123 C5 F0 T"PrepABSR" A"M98 P#0" L"/macros/set-absr-temp"

    to:
    ; Created by PrintM3D

    ; printing, see "s_tune"

    ;button R63 C5 F0 T"Unload Filament »" A"menu x_funload" L"x_funload"

    but i cant even save the s_prepare file in editor without a change. than it just says error to load error in line1
    with what program can i make those changes or what else do i need to change that it works

    Thanks everybody

    You can indeed use Ü and ß in menu text, I just tried it and it works. I used the built-in editor in Duet Web Control, and as my keyboard is UK layout I entered these characters using the Windows key codes I found at [www.alt-codes.net] which are Alt 0220 and Alt 0223.

    If you use an external editor to edit menu files, make sure that it saves the file in UTF8 format without a byte order mark.

    When you say:

    but i cant even save the s_prepare file in editor without a change. than it just says error to load error in line1

    Are you using the built-in editor in Duet Web Control? If so, which version of Duet Web Control? If not, what editor are you using?

    Also, which firmware version is running on your Maestro? 2.04 is current.



  • Hello, first thanks very much that was very helpful already. Im just using the text editor from windows. I just got the printer a few days ago and didnt open the webcontrol, i still need to download it and figure out how it works and how i can update the firmware specific for the quad crane printer. but still thanks i will download that and look into it.
